The Phantom of the Opera (1925)

Christine Daaé (Mary Philbin), an ingénue with the Paris Opera House, has recently advanced as understudy to prima donna Carlotta (Virginia Pearson). Her admirer Vicomte Raoul de Chagny (Norman Kerry) and his brother Comte Phillipe (John St. Polis) frequent the venue...

The Stepfather (1987)

The Stepfather is a 1987 horror film that spawned two fairly campy sequels and one remake; it was Stepfather II that first introduced me to the franchise. At the time, covertly watching late-night cable at a friend's house, I was just a young sprog with little concept...

The Meg (2018)

Having just watched The Meg at the drive-in last week, I was discussing he film with a friend last night. In explaining the movie to a third party listening in, my friend simply said, "It is what it is." I mean really - who goes to a giant prehistoric shark action...

Weekly Round-Up: Southbound

Southbound (2015) So, horror anthologies. Let's face it: they're corny. While I understand their appeal, I'm usually not compelled by the typical fare they consist of: sci-fi "gotcha" vignettes, spoooooky morality twists - or simply, relentless cruelty. This film uses...

Weekly Round-up: Miami Connection

Synopsis: five orphans room together while attending Central Florida College; nights they moonlight as the rock band Dragon Sound, and wage battle with drug-dealing motorcycle ninjas operating out of Orlando. Yeah. Yeah, you heard right. Miami Connection is one of the...

Great White (1981)

According to its Wikipedia entry, 1981 Italian film Great White (alternate title: The Last Shark) had only a short theatrical release in the US before it was pulled "after accusations of plagiarism of Jaws". You don't say? The film doesn't only rip-off Jaws - and Jaws...

The Shallows (2016)

Until I watched The Shallows I guess deep down I didn't think we had another good shark film in the tank (yuk yuk). I mean we really lucked out with Jaws: a horror-drama rather than true eco-horror, well-paced with perfect humor and chemistry. We've had a few other...
